Road tax introduced in Belgium

Belgium will as per April 1st 2016 introduce a new road tax.

Each truck will be equipped with an “On Board Unit”. The Unit will record the number of kilometers driven in Belgium.

The new taxes will affect all units over 3.5 tonnes, carrying goods into and / or through Belgium. This road tax is an unforeseen cost that unfortunately will generate an extra cost added to the freightrates. Both transport and lead time will remain unchanged. The Belgian Authorities intention is to reduce the heavy weight traffic and optimize the Belgian road network with the new road tax.
